A long-time dream comes true
At last, after the long wait, Cabilao Island, Loon, Bohol is now energized; thanks to the Cabilao Island Submarine Cable Interconnection Project’s official switch on last February 21, 2014. With this development, Cabilaonons would no longer depend on diesel-powered generator units, which operated six (6) hours daily from 6:00 in the evening to 12:00 o’clock midnight.
Notwithstanding the hefty price tag of the Project, the proponents of the Php25-Million dream project held profound conviction on their advocacy to pursue the true meaning of common good, i.e doing the greatest good for the greatest number for the longest time. Thus, the National Electrification Administration (NEA) thru its Barangay Line Enhancement Program (BLEP), Local Government Unit of Loon, Office of First District Representative, Provincial Government of Bohol and Bohol I Electric Cooperative, Inc. (BOHECO I) poured in their respective substantial counterpart fund for this undertaking as each prime mover reckoned the project to promise plethora of potentials especially on the burgeoning local tourism industry that would eventually translate to the enhancement of the quality of lives of the people.
The ceremonial Switch-On of the project was held at the Congressman Anatalio Castillo Memorial Hospital in Basac, Loon on February 24, 2014 in time for the Presidential Visit of His Excellency Benigno S. Aquino III. Said occasion was also graced by the Provincial Officials led by Gov. Edgar M. Chatto, LGU-Loon Officials headed by Mayor Lloyd Peter M. Lopez, BOHECO I Board and Management, and other representatives from the various sectors of society.
Fulfilling this lifelong dream is indeed overwhelming for the Cabilaonons, who once thought that energization is punching the moon and who at some point lost the drive to dream, but they kept their faith and persevered. As a result, Cabilao Island has finally found thrust to keep their burning aspirations aflame, and that is achieving for even greater heights in the field of sustainable development.
Cabilaonons’ long-time dream of having a 24-hour electric service in the island came true on February 21, 2014 when the sub-marine cable connecting the island to the main grid was finally energized.
